It depends on the drug. You didn't specify if this is a "legal" or prescribed drug. What exactly do you mean or to which drug are you referring ?

How much calcium should be taken daily when on arimidex (anastrozole)?

2 doctor answers7 doctors weighed in
Dr. Susan Wingo
Endocrinology 33 years experience
1500 mg: 1500 mg is the recommended calcium intake for women with low estrogen levels, including women who have gone through menopause, had a hysterectomy with ovaries removed, or are taking meds like Arimidex that lower estrogen levels. Because vitamin d is necessary to absorb calcium, taking a 1000-2000 iu of vitamin d3 is a good idea as well.
A member asked:

I am taking 60 mg phenobarbital daily after my skull tumor operation in 1995. What precautions should I take for my daily routine?

Ask yourself why: Was it a skull tumor or brain tumor? Why was the drug started in the 1st place? For seizure prevention? Have you ever had a seizure? Do you still need it? If you still need a seizure med, why phenobarbital? That's a bad drug for adults: bad for your bones, not great for your liver either. Go see a neurologist and ask him/her to reassess everything.
